Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name was stated to be composed of the Greek word Nama, meaning 'spring' or 'stream', and the name of the genus Lycastis Savigny, 1822, an unavailable name previously including some fresh-water nereid species now included under Namalycastis (Glasby, 1999: 28). Additionally the Lycastis part of the compound name appears to derive from the feminine Greek personal name Lykaste or Lycaste. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Hartman (1959) states Namalycastis is a 'new name' (rather than labelling it as a new genus), seemingly implying it is a replacement for Lycastis, but it is a new genus. As Hartman was aware, Chamberlin (1919) had (very briefly) proposed Namanereis for the "Lycastis" group of nereidids, with Lycastis quadraticeps Gay as the type. [details]
